1.9 Jtd Ti remap & dpf removal.
I thought I'd share my experience of my newly remapped car.
The car in question is my 2009 159 Ti, 1.9 jtd - (with the timing belt just replaced!!)
I've read quite a few reviews on different tuning companies before getting mine mapped, and I settled for Angel Tuning @ Cropredy Garage.
a) they were closer to me,
b) they've done quite a few Alfa's, along with other makes, and
c) £330 was a really good price.
The difference is really noticeable!! Before the work, I could achieve average mpg of 39 (which for a 1.9 D is pretty cra*p). Now, I can achieve on average 48 mpg. Huge difference with the same driving style.
The other benefit, of course, is the power. Wow! They suguested I should see an extra 50 - 55 bhp improvement, which I thought was a tad optamistic, but I can say the difference is staggerring. I've not had the car on a rolling road to verify the figures, but I have driven plenty of high powered cars, and can say from experience that I don't think it's far off 200 bhp at all. For a diesel, this car now puts an even bigger smile on my face!!
The guys at Angel Tuning are a really nice and friendly bunch, (they're actually an ex Jenson dealership).
I can't sing their praises enough!
